Beginning in 2018, we will offer annual leases to a limited number of families to support and enhance the land according to Forest Society deed. Faraway Pond will offer annual leases to no more than 15 families while carefully monitoring and evaluating the impact of visitors.
Each lease holder may make use of all the land, beaches and trails and may choose to camp as well,
The lease term is for one year, affording the opportunity to experience the beauty and serenity of the property in all seasons.
Three Ways to Become a Lease Holder
An annual lease gives members a choice of tent sites and the right to reserve your camp for your time periods during the summer.
Friends of Faraway
Volunteer your time or skill and join in planting, trail making and gardening or carpentry, and in exchange get a membership that entitles you to access to all pond amenities for the year. Tents may be reserved a week in advance as available.
From time to time, we may invite someone with a special message or skill to share with our members. These Master Teachers will receive an Honorary Membership. The members will get a cool opportunity to take a Master Class.
Every Season is Special at Faraway Pond
Swim, paddle, kayak, and fish in the pristine waters or just relax on the white sand beach or deck. Miles of walking trails through woods and meadows and offer an opportunity to fully experience all the wildlife, flowers and views that make New Hampshire famous.
Our favorite time in the Great North Woods Is Fall. Bright sun, blazing colors and crisp air are perfect for hikes, and cozy times by the fire. Pick apples in our our own organic orchard. We hope to host a cider making day every Fall.
The air is clean and brisk, and when there is snow on the trails cross country skiing or snowshoeing is a fun activity. In winter the wildlife tracks are abundant and the mountain views spectacular. When the ice is thick, we can skate on the pond, go ice fishing or sled down the hill to the orchard.
Once the ice melts, the peepers (tiny frogs) crank up announcing that Spring is here. It takes a long time to see the leaves and flowers in the North Country, but when the sun rises after a frosty night, the sap also runs in our native maple trees. Stop by a local Maple Sugar Shack and experience the warm moist fog as it boils down to syrup.
